Red Palm Thunder Colt Slingshot
The Colt follows the classic British Cup-style slingshot, designed by Mark Todd.
This aluminum version is designed to be held in a finger and thumb brace (or with larger hands, a pinch grip) a intentionally slimmed waist area which gives a positive lock for the middle finger for a sure grip. The 1/2″ thick frame is hand finished and lightly tumbled for a shiny surface.
The thicker 1/2″ thick, stabilized Red Palm scale fills the hand while the thinner 1/4″ dark Cocobolo scale is shaped to have the fingers wrap around it. A yellowheart makers mark is decorates the Red Palm, and the scales are attached to the frame with blackened stainless steel screws. The scales are finished with a mixture of beeswax and linseed oil.
Band grooves help keep bands in place and the holes are designed to either attach paracord tabs or use the snare-and-wrap technique of attaching tubular rubber.
Width: 3.25″, 6.5″ tall, 1.75″ fork gap.
